no input in land use other than commenting which is a whole host of other cities and counties. so, we're not very well coordinated in terms of our planning and that is a tremendous draw back and it's a good effort we're trying get together in terms of water resources but we're at a very early staple and that perhaps ties back to legislation and it's local land use speculation and all of that on water supply and issues we have little coordination. it's very difficult. >> i think one of the most interesting things, as water management agencies we deal with tremendous amount of regulation coming from a lot of different places and it can be extraordinarily time consuming and sometimes, lead you into - some times in order to accomplish one regulation you might go out of compliance with another one, so in my mind having away to cut through this and bringing regulators together to understand some of these issues, and perhaps, really trying help instead of something that keeps us tied up every day and makes it difficult to step back and think about climate change issues is very important
